YEAR five pupils from Steyning Primary School chatted with the Prince of Wales this afternoon during a tour of the Wiston Esate.
The nine and ten-year-olds were taking part in a Chef on the Farm day, learning about the sheep flock, digging potatoes, picking herbs and making lamb burgers.
Prince Charles greeted children working in three separate groups and spoke to estate staff during the tour.
He was shown around by estate manager Richard Goring and spoke to Dan Corlett, chief executive of the Farming and Countryside Education Trust, and Sara Jayne Stanes, chief executive of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, about the Countryside Classroom project.
Oliver Richards, who was one of the Steyning pupils the Prince spoke to about their school awards, said: “It was brilliant.”
